Took 1679$ from me to transport a car from Montreal to Vancouver.
Car never left Montreal.
Never returned money.
After 3 weeks of delays for unexplained reasons, Gerry sent me to an industrial parking lot in Montreal to ship the car with a trucking company, *** Transport, without actually paying them to transport the car.
I met the *** Transport driver in the parking lot, and was surprised to be given a blank form to fill out with no mention of Gerry or Auto Rail.
It's as if I was hiring the trucking company myself.
Confused, I filled out the form, carefully putting Auto Rail as the shipper.
The driver loaded the car, and I left thinking the car would finally be on its way to Vancouver after three weeks.
I hadn't even had the time to cross the street, when the *** Transport dispatcher, called me to inform that they were missing information from Gerry, and would therefore have to unload the car.
I call Gerry. Amazingly, as anyone who has business dealings with the man knows, he picked up on the first ring. I tell him to call back the *** Transport dispatcher.
Even more amazingly, the dispatcher calls me back a few minutes later to tell me that all is good, and that the car will be on its way to Vancouver.
An hour later, I'm relaxing and enjoying a pleasant lunch when I get a call from the other Transport dispatcher informing that Gerry has given them false information, has not paid them, and that the truck driver will be unloading the car at the next truck stop.
After discussing with the dispatcher, and providing him all the documentation, I manage to convince the dispatcher that we are both victims.
He agrees to send the driver back to the parking lot to unload the car, on condition that I pay for a tow truck to unload the car from the flat bed transport truck.
I agree. The tow truck ends up costing me another 97.53$.
The dispatcher informs he that not only did Gerry not pay him, Gerry provided him with the number of a Burger King as the number to contact in Vancouver, and gave the address of an auction house as the drop off address of the car in Vancouver, leading him to believe he was going to sell off the car.
